A Turning Point for Emergent NorthTec Artists

One of the more creative definitions of the word pivot is “The person or position from which a body of troops takes its reference point when moving or changing course.”

Opening Thursday 26 November at NorthTec’s Geoff Wilson Gallery, the graduate exhibition Pivot is the culmination of three years’ work, and the reference point from which students in the Bachelor of Applied Arts degree programme in Whangarei advance forward.

Pivot showcases the diverse creative explorations of 14 artists. From dystopian digital animation to architecturally-inspired ceramic sculpture installations, many forms of artistic media are represented, including printmaking, photography, painting and graphic design.
 
Student Amber Brownlie speaks of her experience at NorthTec and the significance behind the name Pivot: “Now coming to the end of this journey, we are at the pivot point, we can turn in any direction. Unlimited possibilities, infinite choices, we can go anywhere from here.”
 
Experience this pivotal point - the launching of 14 emerging artists. The exhibition opens on Thursday 26 November at 4.30pm, and runs until 11 December. The gallery is open Tuesday – Friday 11.00am – 5.30pm.
 
The Geoff Wilson Gallery is located at NorthTec’s Whangarei campus, Gate 3, Raumanga Valley Road. For further information phone 09 470 3805, visit our Facebook page or go to www.northtec.ac.nz
